Today’s unboxing is a big deal for me because not only are these are the first new goldfish I’ve gotten in 6 months, but they’re the first new goldfish I’ve had shipped to me from Dandy Orandas in well over a year! It feels like things are finally settling back into a normal after the […]

YES the aquarium backgrounds are finally here!!! I’m excited to have these realistic backgrounds for my aquariums and terrariums from AquaDecor Backgrounds. It’s been a long time in the making, and I can’t wait to now get to work setting up the four 120 gallon aquariums from Custom Aquariums that have been patiently waiting on […]

I’m so excited! My terrarium rack from Custom Aquariums has finally arrived and I have all the supplies needed to start setting some of these up as leopard gecko tanks and bioactive dart frog enclosures.

You guys, I have a confession. Remember last week when I visited Josh’s fish room and told you guys he was selling all his calico butterfly telescopes? Yeah… I bought some. đŸ˜› Look at how gorgeous they are; how could I possibly resist? In this video you will see some “secret” footage from Josh’s fish […]

It’s been a little bit since I’ve done a how-to video, and since I always get lots of questions on my new goldfish unboxing videos asking why I acclimate my new fish the way I do, what better topic to cover than how to properly acclimate your new fish? It seems like many people are still […]

I got a new butterfly telescope goldfish from Dandy Orandas four weeks ago. I always peruse the weekly auction just looking to see if there’s anything that catches my eye that I just “have to have”. What I look for in the ideal butterfly telescope is a nice tail that has a good horizontal spread […]
